Former Military Head of State, Maj.- Gen.Muhammadu Buhari, (rtd) yesterday in Ilorin the Kwara State capital said that the Peoples Democratic Party-led Federal Government has institutionalised corruption in Nigeria.
Speaking when the leaders of the All Progressives Congress stormed Kwara State to woo members of the Kwara State chapter of the PDP loyal to a former Governor of the state, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Buhari said; “That nothing has improved over the years shows the non-performance of the ruling PDP. The non-performance of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is enough to remove any government in power except in Nigeria.”
According Buhari he said; “The PDP government has institutionalised corruption in Nigeria. There is no way Nigeria, with its vast population and land can continue to entertain an army of unemployed youths without the resultant effect of kidnapping and the insurgency by Boko Haram.”
While speaking to the gathering he said; “the fundamental objective of the APC is to secure a hope for Nigerians.
However, Bola Tinubu on his own part said; “Can a woman in labour with pains, who has not been able to properly take care of the first child and having the second, think well of democracy if there is no proper medical care?
“Can we talk today of solid and good education that was given to us by our own fathers, because education is a weapon against poverty- can we boast of that in the face of this unending crisis in the education sector?
“Before you know it, this electricity supply will flip and can we continue to sit back and lament and complain about the suffering, about government, about Nigeria going backward and drifting or do something.
“Let us talk together, work together and challenge ourselves for the future of our children.”
Meanwhile the interim chairman of the party; Bisi Akande said: “We are starting a revolution that will make this country a country of the progressives. And that is what we have started just about a week ago and we hope to use Kwara State as a spring to enter the heart of every Nigerian.”
